An instructor in good standing with the Society may receive aid if his branch is also in good standing with the Society. Master, principal and associate instructors may request aid.
The branch where an official seminar is held may request aid if it is in good standing with the Society.
Aid will be given only one time per financial year to a branch or one of its instructors.
Aid is provided only to the instructor who attended the seminar or to the branch where the seminar has been held.
For an instructor, aid is based on the distance between the branch where this instructor teach the majority of its time and the branch where the seminar is held. For a branch where a seminar is held, aid is based on the distance between this branch and the branch whose invited instructor teach the majority of its time.
Distance is computed according to the geographical coordinates as given by the « Google Earth » service.
The aid consist of an amount of Canadian money computed according to the following formula.
Amount = Log10 (D+10) x Root (D)
D is the distance in kilometers between the two points. The value is rounded to the nearest dollar.
The amount paid is independent of any other considerations.
The amount will be paid by the secretary treasurer under the condition that aid has been requested by email to him at least two weeks before the date the seminar is to be held.
The secretary treasurer will confirm that the request is accepted with the amount allowed or refused.
The payment will be made only after validation of the participation of the instructor to the event.
In order for a seminar to be official it is mandatory that the instructor teaching at the seminar be the Technical director or an instructor whose title is Shihan or Shidoin.
Approval by the Technical director is mandatory in order that a seminar is declared official. The secretary treasurer must have confirmed the event to the principal instructor of the dojo hosting the event.
